It’s been far too long since I last had a beer from the trusty folks over at Siren Craft Brew. They had their eight anniversary not too long ago and while I would’ve have loved to have taken part I already own far too much beer to justify buying more. Instead I’ve gone for ‘Midnight Stack’ a Maple Pancake Milk Stout that has been Nitro … Continue reading Beer Review: Midnight Stack – Siren Craft Brew
This Stout Sunday I’m going big. In fact I’m going bigger than I’ve ever gone before and perhaps bigger than I ever will go. ‘Big Trouble Al’owa’ is a collaboration between two Newcastle Breweries: By The River and Wylam. The beer is a Pecan and Maple Imperial Stout coming in at an insane 14% ABV. Yes, you did read that correctly. That’s stronger than some … Continue reading Beer Review: Big Trouble Al’owa – By The River x Wylam
The last time I had a beer from Scottish brewers Williams Brothers was when Lidl had their beer festival on a few months back. Well this is exactly where this beer is from. I’ve had it kicking about for a little bit now but I thought it would go perfectly in my new glass. Named after the movie (I imagine), ‘March of the Penguins’ is … Continue reading Beer Review: March of the Penguins – Williams Bros Brewing Co.
It’s Stout Sunday and today I’m reviewing the last beer from my Premier Hop order I made just before Christmas. All the beers I bought have been solid to outstanding so once I’ve whittled down my recent supermarket purchases I may have to treat myself to another order. I’ve gone for yet another new brewery, this time based in Hull, in the form of Atom! … Continue reading Beer Review: Neutrino – Atom
Hitting up Stout Sunday this week with a new brewery that isn’t too far from where I live. Exale Brewing is based in East London, near the River Lee. ‘Deep Dark’ is without a doubt a contender for one of the most bizarre sounding beers I’ve seen. It is a stout featuring seaweed, oyster and black pepper with actual crushed oyster shells used in the … Continue reading Beer Review: Deep Dark – Exale Brewing
It’s Stout Sunday once again and I’ve got something rather interesting for today’s review. ‘White Soul’ is from Bang the Elephant Brewing Co and what makes it interesting is the style: a white stout. From what I’ve read the key difference is that malts aren’t roasted so the dark colours haven’t been imparted onto the beer. The goal seems to be to match those coffee … Continue reading Beer Review: White Soul – Bang the Elephant
Much like how I’ve been meaning to watch the movie ‘Layer Cake’ for a while, I’ve equally had this beer in the fridge to try for a couple months. Released into Morrisons by heavyweights BrewDog, ‘Layer Cake’ is a 7% ABV Marshmallow and Chocolate Stout. I’m always a little concerned of marshmallow flavours in a stout because I’ve found it has the tendency to make … Continue reading Beer Review: Layer Cake – BrewDog
My local bottle shop owners had just got this beer in last week and successfully convinced me to give it a try. Based on the two breweries involved I was fairly confident it would be great. ‘Up Late’ is a collaboration between Bristol based Left Handed Giant and the particularly brilliant Falmouth based Verdant. It’s a big 10% imperial stout with hazelnut and vanilla. This … Continue reading Beer Review: Up Late – Left Handed Giant x Verdant
My first ever low alcohol stout today from a brewery that specialises in creating Non/Low Alcoholic brews. Big Drop are based up in Ipswich and have been brewing since 2015. I grabbed this from my local bottle shop Arch Rivals on recommendation that it’s very close to coming across like an actual beer. ‘Galactic Milk Stout’ is a Silver winner at the World Beer Awards … Continue reading Beer Review: Galactic Milk Stout – Big Drop Brewing Co.
Something new for Stout Sunday today! While I’ve certainly had plenty of classic Polish lagers from the corner shop, this will be my first Polish craft beer! This is Maltgarden Brewery and their ‘Escape With Me’ stout at a hefty 7.5% ABV. It’s been brewed with added hazlenut, maple syrup and cinnamon. I think it’s either going to be well balanced or have the potential … Continue reading Beer Review: Escape With Me – Maltgarden
